The Big Question: Too Late?
One question I get once women start learning about how to get healthy is a question you might have too. Is it too late? Am I damaged beyond repair? Should I even bother changing my lifestyle if I’ve ruined my body?
Lemme tell ya: IT’S NEVER TOO LATE.
It’s never too late. Start today. You can detox, heal, and start patching up your sinking ship.
The Boat Metaphor
There’s a metaphor for this that I absolutely love… If you have a hole in your boat leaking in water, you have to plug the hole before you can start bailing out water. Chances are, you’re not bailing out the water faster than it’s coming it. Then you sink.
What does this have to do with your health? If you’re taking in toxins (such as glyphosate, heavy metals, pesticides, mold, or high levels of sugar) before you can start repairing the damage, you have to stop the toxin intake. Start eating organic, grass-fed, low sugar, high fat goodness.
Then take stock. What are your hormone levels like? Your medications? Stress levels? Environmental factors?
Basically, what else is going on that could affect your health besides your nutrition. While food is the ultimate medicine, it’s not the only thing that dictates health. If you have a tack in each thumb and only remove one tack, you’re still gonna be in the same amount of pain!
When Will I See Results?
Now there are some time factors that will come into play when you start getting healthy. For example, once you eat bad fats it takes your body about 4.5 months — 132 days!! — to heal the cells enough to bring them out of dysfunction. It then takes about 2 years to replace half of the cell membranes, fully repairing the cells . That means that once you start introducing healthy fats and getting rid of toxic foods, it will take your body many, many months to flush and replace all the bad building blocks with good ones.
You might start feeling a difference much faster than a couple of years — in fact, you probably will! But to fully recover from major health problems can take time. Don’t get discouraged if nothing seems to be happening. Stay the course, give your body what it needs, and it will give back to you.
